Ask the Waste Wizard to find out where and how to properly dispose of an item.


Almost 50 per cent of household waste (by weight) is organic material. The City’s Green Bin program helps keep waste out of the landfill by collecting organic material and turning it into compost that can be used in gardens and parks. The City collects organics from approximately 460,000 houses, as well as apartment and condo buildings, schools and City-owned buildings.
